A prostatectomy is the surgical removal of all or part of the prostate gland. Abnormalities of the prostate, such as a tumor or enlargement, can restrict the flow of urine in the urethra and may need to be corrected surgically.
Our surgeons perform prostatectomies via traditional open surgery, laparoscopy and robotic surgery.
Sacral nerve stimulation
When medication and behavioral therapy are ineffective in treating certain urologic conditions, we offer sacral nerve stimulation. The sacral nerves control the bladder and muscles related to urinary function. One possible cause of overactive bladder is miscommunication between the brain and the sacral nerves. Sacral nerve stimulation uses gentle electrical stimulation of the sacral nerves. This reduces the signals to the nervous system which may cause bladder control symptoms.
We offer sacral nerve stimulation to treat urologic conditions, such as:
- Overactive bladder
- Urinary retention
- Urinary urge incontinence
